Most IPL photofacials are a 30-minute procedure where intense pulses of light penetrate deep into your skin to help decrease skin issues.
IPL Photofacial therapy is a non-invasive, non-abrasive option for reducing birthmarks, age spots, and freckles caused by the sun. IPL is also used to decrease acne and wound scarring and effective hair removal. Intense pulsed light photofacials cause blood vessels below the skin to constrict, which reduces redness and age lines.
Three to six treatment sessions are commonly advised and spaced three weeks apart. Treatment usually last from 30 to 90 minutes, You will see ongoing improvement after each treatment, and optimal results appear after several months.
IPL penetrates below the skin’s surface, leaving the top layer of skin intact. After an IPL Treatment, you will experience little downtime, and you can return to your daily activities immediately. The treated skin might be somewhat red, but this disappears within a day or two. The skin often flakes and peels as it heals. Use sunscreen and avoid sun exposure following an IPL treatment.
Laser Resurfacing for Aging Skin takes an ablative laser resurfacing tool. This skin treatment is a therapy using a wand-like laser instrument to remove the upper layers of skin. It is often called laser peeling since it removes old skin cells and reveals newer, more youthful cells.

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. The treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage), and energy settings.
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with the most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
